What is Probate and Why is it Needed?

Probate is the process of settling a person’s final estate who did not have a plan setup. If an individual dies without a proper plan in place and owned assets, probate is necessary. Working with an attorney takes away any guesswork, potential for errors, and makes the entire process faster and easier.

  • Fees for probate in Arkansas are set by statute to a percentage or “other contractual agreement.”

    The percentage works out to about 3% of the gross estate. The 3% is calculated before debts are subtracted out.

    In addition to this fee, the executor is due their fee which is about 3% of the value of the personal property of the estate.

    Finally, you can expect the filing fee, travel costs, newspaper publications, appraisers, and more.
